Summer Time is a project of an acclaimed Russian jazz pianist and composer Natalia Skvortsova. With this album, Natalia and her band attempted to create a music, inspired by very specific images and appearances, described in the track titles: a rose, a train, a sleeping boy, etc. Obviously, the musical form of their choice is jazz. So the resulting album is a very nice piece of melodic, soft and groovy contemporary jazz – a perfect soundtrack for your summer laid-back listening session....

In 1967, Steve Reich composed Piano Phase - a piece of music for two pianos. It was his first attempt at applying the phasing technique to live performance. Two pianists are playing a rapid twelve-note melodic figure over and over again in unison. As one player precisely keeps the tempo, the other speeds up very slightly until the two parts line up again, but one sixteenth note apart. The second player then resumes the previous tempo. This cycle of speeding up and then locking in continues...

George Crumb , a renowned modern American composer, started to write music after Second World War, and he is still working nowadays. He wrote A Little Suite for Christmas for piano in 1980. The main idea of this composition is a dialogue between sound and silence, which is the fully legitimate "member" of Crumb's music. The long pauses between intensive blasts of sound prepare the listener very well to conceive even the subtlest musical passages, and the whole impression is really...

AkkordIon is a unique duo from Kazakhstan.

The result is here – minimal techno (and abstract ambient) with accordion! Deep, groovy, relaxed techno (raw and filling bass-line, sentimental and desperate harmonica melodies); abstract clicks-n-cuts, sudden blasts of accordion; noisy, but elegant sound collages,...

Working with numerous granular loops with automated controllers for filters, effects and pitches, Dave is creating very solid, stylish and beautiful ambient techno.

A collage-album of field recordings from Ukraine, Black Sea. It was almost a year of painstaking and plodding labor to select, cut and mix this album, using 7 original minidisks, recorded during the vacation. Very emotional audio expression of an unforgettable holiday experience. The feeling of summer! In addition, this digital release also contains 43 photos.

Svart1 is a project of Raimondo Gaviano from Cagliari, Sardinia. Since his debut appearance at top-40.org, the album DaVisibiliaAdInvisibilia was re-released twice - at Bump Foot (Japan) and Ear-XP Records (Netherlands). Very impulsive mixture of rich and sometimes dense abstract analogue & digital noises, melodies and post-idm beats. Often unexpected soundscapes, warm and cozy atmospheres, surrealistic feelings.

Artur (DJ Nikto), who stays behind ROZA project, hails from Kharkiv, Ukraine, but nowadays he lives in Poland. He describes his own sound as a russian-kosmic-shaman-hypno-contactee style. Hell of a description, but it suits ROZA's music very well. What we really like about the album is that it's almost impossible to characterize it in a matter of specific musical genre or style. This is the music which can be depicted in such terms as good or appealing, or visionary or surreal, but not rock,...

Andrey provided us with this chubby dancehall tracks, and now we're happy to present you his debut single Night Theme. Groovy, minimalistic, chunky - a bit paranoid, but very enjoyable! This cranked kit is a great present for all techno-dance maniacs, DJ's and other dance-influenced music listeners.

This is a radical experiment with silence, paranoid micronoises, inspired by the art of espionage. By chance we were able to capture this secret transmission to reveal the truth – someone's always secretly watching you. The musical idea of this work is concentrated in the absolutely imperceptible nuances: sounds brought to you by your imagination are even more important, that the ones actually recorded. Please do remember, you are under the permanent video surveillance. You know Radio 4's...

Trio Anikina Kate plays instrumental music. Their first album called "Spring of Madness" is an unusual combination of various styles such as jazz, rock, latino, blues, funk with some elements of classical music. The artists want to show us the new world, the "state of beyond", the range of feelings from unrestrained shouts to helpless whispers. The basis of the album is close to an abstraction and at the same moment it is the reflection of the real world as it is seen by the...

And there's one more installment from Alexei Borisov and Olga Nosova , who formed their duo in Moscow, 2009. Blossoming from some lo-fi cheesy lounge renditions and a random chit-chat about delay and reverse (which turns Alexei's output to a "decent bass" and Olga's - to a "piece of shit"), we're drowning in a pretty brutal free improvised industrial noises, pretty intense and calming at the same time. A full live set is followed with a wild 7+ min encore/crescendo! Recorded...

Conceived as a sort of demo/showcase recording, Skazka turns out to be a fantastic, wicked mini-album of high concentrated and impulsive music: industrial, abstract ambient, broken idm. Skazka in Russian means «a fairytale»: in the album you will find all sorts of Russian popular tales, dissolved in aggressive and dark music. Re-released as a part of eponymous full-length album by Entity net-label in 2005: It's not the first time that Entity virtually dwells in the depths of Russia, and with...

A beautiful and intense blast of lo-fi ambient, squeaky ethereal psychedelia and ceaseless flow of cozy melodies and delicate background noises, hovering in a boundless yet perfectly concrete and substantial cloud of sounds and thoughts around. Our latest release from Fescal . He describes it a 'a new direction', and it's definitely one of the best 30 minutes of music I heard in a last few time cycles. These days most discussions around the netlabel "scene" are about "too...

Video surveillance cameras, guarding around every corner, never have any viewers. No emotions, no perceptual judgment, no impulsions. Tiny lens are capturing, passionless and aimless, fragments of stranger's lives, disjointed episodes with no ends or beginnings. Every second kilometers of taped empty rooms, office spaces and parking lots are wasted in the past. Tiny fragments of gloomy soundscapes, distant voices and movements, drowned in the granular noises; rudimental rhythms sometimes are...

Artur (known as DJ Nikto and ROZA) is a real wanderer, being on the move from Poland to his motherland Ukraine and back again all the time. But he still finds some time to write us on the occasion. And we're happy to receive his messages, because usually he's also sending us some of his new music - always talented and wonderful! Now it's just the right time to share some of it with you: the album of "remixes" for Swedish band Hedningarna. Actually, "Hedningarna Remixes"...
